Tout va bien

Olivia de Havilland turns 100 today! You go, girl!


Here she is with Leslie Howard. I know just how you feel, Olivia.

And it’s Friday and daughter #1 is arriving tonight for a three-day weekend visit! Hazzah!

The forecast is for thunderstorms, but who cares?

At least we won’t be frying eggs on the pavement like we were last week.

We have no Big Plans beyond “toodling around” town in my Mini Cooper.


This is a treat for her. (She lives in NYC and hardly ever gets to ride in a car!)

We’ll probably visit the needlepoint store and maybe we’ll look at wallpaper samples at Reineke’s.

We’ll go out to lunch and go to our favorite flyover grocery store to stock up on the necessities.


Maybe we’ll fit in Grant’s Farm and Ted Drewes and maybe not. But in between those predicted showers we’ll get the OM to barb-b-que some hamburgers. The boy and daughter #3 will drop by.

We’ll celebrate the 4th of July flyover-style with a big parade–which is now televised! Mimosas, anyone?

Sounds like a plan to me. It’s the little things, right?

And, hey, why do I not have one of these?

Have a great long weekend and 4th of July!
